The post-a-day photo challenge this week is the word: One. I think this meets the bill.
He lost it at lunch. He was eating strawberries with his old friend Finn. Prior to the berry he was terrified that it was going to hurt, or bleed a lot. Finn tried to reassure, having recently lost his second tooth, that it wouldn’t hurt. The joy on his face, is 5 parts relief, and 5 parts “I’m a big boy now!” I immediately sent Tea (his first mom) a text, with this picture. She said; “OMG he is a snaggle!” Sharing a moment like that with the other person in the world who cherishes the milestones as much as you do, is one more reason being in an open adoption is amazing.
What do you think of when you hear the word one? What milestone, or moment have you shared with a first parent that felt that good?
